Minari

Oscar Winner: Best Supporting Actress. " Wistful and passionate, Minari is a gorgeously crafted film that synthesises the bittersweet pleasures of staying true to your past -- and making space for your future." - Harper's Bazaar

A tender and sweeping story about what roots us, Minari follows a Korean-American family that moves to a tiny Arkansas farm in search of their own American Dream. The family home changes completely with the arrival of their sly, foul-mouthed, but incredibly loving grandmother. Amidst the instability and challenges of this new life in the rugged Ozarks, Minari shows the undeniable resilience of family and what really makes a home.

"Writer-director Lee Isaac Chung’s semi-autobiographical look at a Korean American family moving to Arkansas in the Eighties is a beautiful example of cinema à clef, done with little blustery sentimentality and a surfeit of grace notes — a textbook example of why that-was-the-summer-where-everything-changed movies are less about the tale than how it’s told.

"You think you know where all of this is going — the parental arguing, the appearance of David’s kindly grandmother (Yuh-Jung Youn, who won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for this role) who’s come to stay with them, the fish-outta-water experience that’s compounded by the family’s immigrant status: We see all of this through our underage hero’s perspective, even as Chung’s wisdom and wistfulness informs this look back at his childhood.

"But Minari has a habit of gently leaning left when you expect things to swerve right, from the casual racism that quickly defuses itself to the way the elderly relative becomes David’s co-conspirator instead of an Old World taskmaster. There’s not a false note in any of the performances." - David Fear (Rolling Stone)
